    Chondroitin Sulfate (CS) is a kind of sugar-amine oligosaccharide, which is covalent linked to protein formation. Chondroitin sulfate is widely distributed in the extracellular matrix and cell surface of animal tissues, the sugar chain consists of alternating glucose glyoxylic acid and N-acetyl galactose (also known as N-acetyl amino galactose), which is connected to the serine residue of the core protein by a sugar-like link. Chondroitin sulfate is present in all living organisms, from nematodes to humans, and plays many important physiological functions. Although the main chain structure of polysaccharides is not complex, it is highly heterogeneous in terms of the degree of sulfated, sulfuric acid and the distribution of the two kinds of differences to the chain of the isomeric sugar. The fine structure of chondroitin sulfate determines the specificity of function and interaction with various protein molecules.Chondroitin Sulfate
    Chondroitin sulfate (Chondroitin Sulfate) is a nutritional supplement commonly used in the treatment of arthritis pain. Although it can negatively affect some people, many studies have shown that it is highly tolerated. Common side effects of chondroitin sulfate include nausea and stomachache, and in some cases may cause rashes, nausea and hair loss. In addition, the use of specific drugs may produce an interactive response. In the human body, the chondroitin forms the joint soft tissue. This flexible tissue protects the joints and helps to move more easily. For patients with osteoarthritis, the cartilage in their joints can cause pain and swelling due to damage. Some studies have shown that chondroitin sulfate supplements can reduce this discomfort.Chondroitin Sulfate
    Some studies have found that chondroitin sulfate has a certain side effect, but relatively mild. For example, a large dose of ingestion can cause nausea or stomach pains. These symptoms usually disappear after you stop using nutrients. In addition, the relatively rare side effects of chondroitin sulfate include diarrhea, constipation, rashes, headaches and hair loss Although most people do not have these negative effects, doctors still recommend that some people avoid the use of chondroitin sulfate. For example, people who have had history of prostate cancer. Some studies have found an increase in the levels of the level of chondroitin in the prostate in some patients with prostate cancer. It is for this reason that some experts fear that chondroitin promotes cancer.Chondroitin Sulfate
